Synopsis:

Topic: The "Neglected" and the "Popular": A Discussion on the Studies of Pre-Modern Chinese Literature
Speaker: Professor Tan Tian Yuan

The history of Chinese literature extends thousands of years, giving rise to a vast collection of writers and literary works. Some rose to fame while many remained unnoticed. What could be the reason for that? Was there a selection process to determine what is considered classics? Who got to decide? What were the criteria, and did they change over time? How is Chinese literature seen through foreign eyes?

This talk aims to discuss, through subjective and objective perspectives the factors that determine how a literary work is received (including the preservation of texts and their forms, historical commentary and compilation, as well as the various aesthetic concepts in literature).

讲题:"冷门"与"热门"—— 漫谈中国古代文学研究
主讲人:陈靝沅教授

中国文学源远流长,保留了大量作家和作品,历代亦出现了许多名家及名作。在浩瀚如海的作家作品中,一些比较"热门"而熟为人知,另一些则较为"冷门"而乏人问津。这些作家作品或冷或热的原因是什么?我们一般阅读的、更容易接触到的古代文学大家或经典作品,到底经过了怎么样的传播过程以及哪些人的"选择"?历代选集和各种文学史的标准有何异同?外国读者眼中的中国文学,又是怎么样的一道风景?

此讲座将以中国古代文学为中心,讨论作家作品在其历史接受过程中,各种客观条件及主观因素所产生的作用及影响(包括文本留存与形态、历代评论与编选、不同文化审美取向等)。
